Check the linkage for binding, and the spring for tension. You might just need a slightly stronger spring, or shorten the one on there now (if possible).

It's the linkage. It's the fast idle cam and connector going to the choke leever. I feel the pump plunger assembly is a little stiffer.

My acceleration issue is fixed though it's just sticking. I took it off again to check for free movement but it seems to be a little stiff. Adjusted the pump delay spring to maybe compensate for the tougher plunger. Still getting stuck...

Well I figured it out. I overlooked a spring that connects to the linkage. Only now I'm in need of a fast idle connecting rod and and retainer.

I'm such an idiot. I might have to make one if I cant find it online.

I think I have an old RBS carb.  Let me check if it still has the rod on it.
